Re: Cabinet Speaker Wirking Question
If you really want BIG TONE, you need a large or oversized 4x12 cabinet.
No 1x12 or 2x12 is going to really stomp and put out the big bottom end.
The G12K-100 is the big boy of the Celestion family, it has the big tone.
It's a 100Wwatt speaker, it should get good cleans even at high volumes depending on the rest of your rig and it's setup.
In my mind there are two schools of thought with speakers.
1. You rig creates 95% of the tone and the cab conveys that tone to your ears.
2. your speakers color the tone coming from your rig adding the hole sound you hear.
This usually requires a higher level of volume to puss the speakers to distort.
Food for thought-
